    Looks like a lot of fundamental packages are unavailable, can some one assist, I don't want to change my sources list without some concrete advice

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: Update Manager : Failed to download repository information

    Hi Paul. First off you really should of started your own thread, maybe a mod will come along and split this up. - a mod has!

    Anyhow your sources.list are a bit of a mess. Try this in terminal:

    sudo mv /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.old

    sudo apt-get update

    Did that do any good? If not, please post the output of:

    cat -n /etc/apt/sources.list

    Re: Repository fails to update with 404 Error.

    Jerrys,

    thanks for the assistance so far. I followed your direction (I should have figured out the sources list update had I of spent more time searching this forum). The sources update has progressed me to the next hurdle, now when I run the update manager I get the following text and the UM fails...


    Could not initialize the package information

    An unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package information.

    Please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message:

    'E:Opening /etc/apt/sources.list - ifstream::ifstream (13: Permission denied), E:The list of sources could not be read.'


    When I run cat -n /etc/apt/sources.list in the terminal i get a permission denied, which is puzzling me, I have full admin rights on my machine and never had this issue before.

    paul@paul-desktop:~$ cat -n /etc/apt/sources.list
    cat: /etc/apt/sources.list: Permission denied
    paul@paul-desktop:~$


    Appreciate if you can help out as I am a pure nub. Probably wont get a chance to wouk on this till the weekend but if you leave a post I will pick it up ... eventual.

    Wasn't expecting to hear from you till the weekend

    Lets try a different approach. Open a terminal and enter:

    gksudo nautilus

    Then go to your filesystem and navigate to /etc/apt/sources.list

    And be careful what you do, sudo can be very unforgiving.

    Ok so I followed your direction and opened the sources.list file which opens the Software Sources window, everything in here looks normal, what should I be looking for?

    One thing of note, all the options in the Software Sources window are unselected in each tab.

    That "cat -n" command should of done the same thing. Anyhow would you go ahead and post that (copy and paste).
